Righthaven LLC -- a bottom feeding legal outfit -- has teamed up with the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Denver Post to sue mom and pop websites, advocacy and public interest groups and forum board operators for copyright infringement. The strategy of Righthaven is to sue thousands of these website owners, who are primarily unfunded and will be forced to settle out of court.

What is the Post thinking? Are they a sinking ship (like the other Denver newspaper, which sunk last year) grasping for straws? Certainly the solution to the Post's problem is to go after a small blogger in South Carolina. That will fix the Post "right up!"
